Craig Groeschel writes an easy-to-read book about discovering your purpose. The chapters are perfect for our Twitter-trained brains. Short chapters make it easy to take a break if you need to.
I read a book that was similar in the theme of finding purpose by Mark Batterson. I liked Batterson’s style of writing better, but that does not mean that others won’t connect with Groeschel’s style.
Groeschel’s book was a good reminder of Proverbs 29.18 KJV: Where there is no vision, the people perish.
“Are you willing to let God disturb you with dreams so big that you don’t know how they’ll be accomplished” (15)? That was a very challenging question for me. I am still pondering it.
“He sends you where you don’t want to go to learn what you thought you already knew” (21).
“Setbacks are often setups for God to act” (23).
Given where I am currently at in life, these few quotes from the book were really powerful to me.
I like that there was an online component that complimented the book. I took a spiritual gifts test online and it was really interesting to me to confirm how God has made me.
I would recommend this book.

I reviewed this book for Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers Blogging for Books. I received this book for free in exchange for a review of the book.
